Chris’ love of flying began with a glider flight as a Civil Air Patrol cadet in southern California. After a long break from flying, he earned his private pilot certificate in 2012. Thanks to the Post-9/11 GI Bill, he was able to complete aviation degrees and embark on a second career as a pilot. He has lived in Colorado since 2018, having moved from the east coast. Chris is inspired by the many instructors he’s trained with, most with extensive military or professional aviation experience, and seeks to “pay it forward” to the next generation of professionals!
“Being a professional pilot is an attitude – it’s not just for those who make their living by flying.”
